There was a long line of pine trees
When I was a little girl
Now they’re all gone
Those wise dreams
But I’m still a little girl.

Mama kept us rounded
And daddy kept us warm
But as I climbed the branches
They couldn’t keep me from those storms, no.

Sweet and blonde, so pretty
They braid her hair
Smart and brave
So willing
To take what’s theirs

Blue eyes, child,
You got blue eyes, child
Why such blue eyes, child?
And why do you cry?
And won’t you try?

There was a long line of pine trees
When I was a little girl
Now they’re all gone
Those wise dreams
But I’m still a little girl.
